Castle Exhibition

This year the opening of a new historical exhibition is in preparation. It will be located on the first floor of the right part of the south wing of the castle.

The concept of the exhibition is mixed. Historic rooms, as they probably looked in the 17th and 18th century, alternate with a modern exhibition using large-screen monitors and projections.

The timeline of the exhibition begins in the year 962, the year the Holy Roman Empire was founded. The beginnings of the Colloredo and Mansfeld families time. The families were united in 1771, when  Franz Gundakar I Colloredo got married to María Isabella von Mansfeld-Vonderort.

The timeline continues through the heyday, when the membera of the Colloredo-Mannsfeld family had a significant influence on the success of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and on the spiritual life in Central Europe.

We will also stop in the time of the Industrial Revolution, when the Colloredo-Mannsfeld family was successfully doing business, for example in the brewery, the wood- and metal processing industry, the sugar industry and the railway construction.

This time was followed by the turbulent times of the 20th century, the time of World War I, the founding of Czechoslovakia, the land reform, World War II, the nationalization of private properties and finally the restitution in the 1990’s.

The exhibition is designed for all generations. It is interesting for those, whop are interested in history, as well as family with kids, for whom there will be an easier and more entertaining version of the tour.
